Deadline to sign up for Maggie's classes to guarantee she comes is December 27!

Macha Necklace - Thurs, Jan 20 - The original piece was inspired by the Celtic torcs worn in ancient Ireland and was named for the woman who was the only High Queen among the High Kings of Ireland.

Participants should be familiar with circular peyote and right angle weave.

Bacchus Bracelet & Earrings - Fri, Jan 21 - The grape motif is found throughout antiquity in jewelry, mosaics, and frescoes. Participants will learn to make grape leaves with a combination of Right Angle Weave and peyote stitch and grape clusters with a variation of Nepal Chain to make a pair of earrings or bracelet. Instructions include directions for both medium and large leaves. Intermediate - participants should be proficient with peyote and familiar with Right Angle Weave.

Iside Necklace - Sat, Jan 22 - Iside (Isis in Italian) is a pendant inspired by the headdress that is found on many of the statues of Isis found in Pompeii and Southern Italy.
